Book Review: “A New Jerusalem” by Stephen Black

“A New Jerusalem” is book 2 in the Kirkwood Scott series by author Stephen Black, and it kicks off with a bit of what drew me into these books in the first place: first-rate descriptions of Napoleonic warfare. You can almost smell the gunpowder as French and English cannons exchange volleys, feel the sting of …

Book Review: “The Kite Runner” by Khaled Hosseini

Buckle up, this is gonna be a long review. “The Kite Runner” is a book written by an Afghan about Afghanistan, and I’ll tell you why thatvmade this such a great read for me.

Book Review: “American Ulysses” by Ronald White

This gives us a particular image, one of old, wisened, dignified men who speak softly and lovingly. In turn, this has led us to believe that …

“Do you want to fight?”

I’m currently reading American Ulysses, a phenomenal biography of Ulysses S. Grant written by Ronald C. White. This is the third or fourth such book I’ve read about Grant, but every time I seem to learn more and more about one of my favorite Americans! For instance when he lived in Galena, IL, White tells …

Book Review: “Genghis Khan” by Frank McLynn

I just finished reading an enormous volume on the famous conqueror Genghis Khan. Sadly, it wasn’t nearly as good as I hoped. Honestly, this is one of my least favorite history books. The timeline wasn’t linear, the author kind of jumped around Genghis’ life a bit in the middle of the book. He also went …
